Beautiful garnet colour with magenta hues and and irresistible nose of crushed strawberries, stones and minerals. The soils here are sandy over decomposed pink granite. Often the most gentle and most immediately attractive release from Jean, this again is very svelte. Superb mouthfeel, silky bright and attractive. A big, silky dimension - finishes fresh and clear. A great Corcelette. - Andrew Guard - Importer
Grape Growing & Wine Making
Jean Foillard is a fervent supporter, like Marcel Lapierre, of the natural wine growing and making methods of the legendary Jules Chauvet. This includes keeping whole clusters of grapes in vats for 2 to 3 weeks at a low temperature before fermentation, using only natural yeast, no pumping, no fining and no filtration. Furthermore he ages his wine in barrels brought from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
